Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions


  • How do you pronounce your last name?
    Milne rhymes with "kiln." Now how appropriate is that!

  • What do you like about glass?
    I like glass because it can take on an infinite number of forms and textures. It can show an interior image and an exterior image simultaneously. It's translucent and transparent. It plays with light. It looks cool when it's hot.

  • What's the difference between hot-cast and kiln-cast glass?
    Hot cast glass is molten glass (2,200°F) ladled out of a furnace and poured into a mold. Kiln cast glass is slowly heated in a kiln to 1,450-1,650°F and slowly left to drizzle into a mold. For both processes, the molds are usually used only once.

  • Can you describe the process?
    A book describing my Knitted Glass process (How Does She Do That?) is available under my "Shop" tab.

  • Are you any relation to A. A. Milne?
    Do you mean Alan Alexander Milne (January 18, 1882 - January 31, 1956), the British author best known for his books about the talking stuffed bear, Winnie-the-Pooh? Unfortunately, no relation. Although my middle initial is also A and I'm from Canada and sometimes you'll still catch me saying A, eh?

  • Do you work on commission?

  • Where can I see your art?
    Check out the galleries page under the "Shop" tab, and there is always my Seattle studio, by appointment.
    I've also created a few art books.
